The Mennella siblings send their heartfelt condolences to Virginia, Magda, Tarek, Nadia and Jasmine. There was no funnier, quick-witted and kinder soul than Geeby. We feel blessed to have known his ever-present smile and spirit. Rest in peace.

Good morning, dear! I read the biography of your beloved son, husband and brother Dajani and I want to express my deepest condolences to your whole family. It is very painful to realize when our family is suffering and dying away from an incurable disease. My mother died five years ago from breast cancer and I remember all her suffering. Probably many people came to you to express their condolences. May at this hour and my desire to hug you, even in thoughts, bring you a little relief
